While typing this out I discovered a few things about myself...
1 my handwriting sucks! sevral times I had to google author names because I couldn't read them. I should keep an online book journal from now on
2 I have NO life. Reading is my one and only real hobby. I only watch one hour of tv a week and the rest I spend with a book or browsing the internet and since a book goes everywhere guess which I do more.
3 I read a LOT of junk lol but I saw a few classics in there...but I'm definately ready for the zombie apocalypse.
4 I tend to 'Gulp' down authors...when I find one I like I go to the library and get everything by them I can especially if they've put out lots of books
5 I usually don't read this many in a year [usually around 100 give or take some] but our public library was having a contest to promote reading, the winner with the most books under their belts would win a new IPad.

Best New Authors [to me] of 2011:
Lisa Lutz & Naomi Novik
Lisa Lutz writes about a dysfunctional family of private investigators. what she lacks in description she makes up with wit! Please write lots more
Naomi Novik writes about the napoleonic wars where both sides fight with dragons!! I found this series highly inventive and totally believeable. I loved them all!

Good News: Looks like they'll be making Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter into a movie. I think I want to see it

Bad News: We lost Anne MacCaffrey this year. I love her work, especially the Dragonriders of Pern.

Thanks for reading.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a great cast! They more or less fit the personality, if not exactly the description, of the characters in my head as I read the book. Also, the author is aiding the screenplay, and explained...somewhere (argh don't have the interview link) a few changes he thought would make the story more suitable to the movie format. Namely, the main vampire guy is the same one who killed Abraham's family. Also, one of his friends is African-American. Otherwise it will probably follow the book.

So.... did you win the iPad?

Also Zombies vs. Unicorns - Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier was pretty much awesome! I actually bought it because Scott Westerfeld participated (and was totally team Zombie) but it ended up being a fun book.

Sadly, no iPad for me. someone out there actually read more than me.

My little sister lent me the book. Her favorite stories were the one with Princess Pretty Pants and the man eating unicorn. :D
